Jamie Carragher makes bold prediction about Paul Pogba and Man United
The former Liverpool defender believes Man United midfielder Paul Pogba could be in the running to win the PFA player of the year award
Jamie Carragher believes Paul Pogba could come into the running to win the PFA player of the year award if the Manchester United signing has a strong second half of the season.
The Red Devils signed the France international in an £89m deal from Serie A champions Juventus in the summer transfer window as Pogba became the most-expensive player in the world.
The 23-year-old France playmaker made a slow start to his second Manchester United career in August and September after the midfielder scored one goal in 10 appearances in all competitions.
However, Pogba has started to find some form in recent weeks after one goal and three assists in his last six games to help Manchester United notch up four victories and two draws.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Monday night, former Liverpool defender Carragher examined Pogba’s start to life at Old Trafford.
“He [Pogba] is not quite there yet [as the best player in the league] when you’re thinking of Eden Hazard and the different players going for the PFA player of the year,” Carragher said.
“But I think over the next few months. He could be right in the running.”
Manchester United are in sixth place in the Premier League table and 13 points behind current leaders Chelsea.
